Al LaPeter CRS, CRB, GRI
I began my real estate career in the early 70's, selling residential properties in Southern California. Within two years I owned a brokerage, with at one time hundreds of agents working for me. I have also been a property developer, built many custom high-end homes, and owned and managed apartment complexes and shopping centers in multiple states. When I moved to Sun Valley, Idaho in the late 80’s, I purchased another realty brokerage, and I and my agents sold many multi-million dollars homes. Some of my clients have been on the “Forbes 400” list of wealthy Americans.

I have sold, over my career, hundreds of millions of dollars of residential and commercial real estate. I have invested in many significant commercial properties and have a deep knowledge of how to analyze and structure the purchases and sales of commercial real estate. My long and varied background in so many aspects of real estate has enabled me to do a great job for all the Buyers and Sellers that I have worked with over the years.

I hold a GRI certification, meaning that I graduated from the Realtor’s Institute. I have been a CRB (Certified Residential Broker) since 1975 and a CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) since 1978. I am a Charter CRS member, having been on the CRS faculty and helping to develop the original CRS courses. These are advanced designations that are held by a 4% of Realtors nationwide, and evidence high levels of both education and experience in the real estate field. In the Tucson area, I am one of only 12 Realtors that hold a CRS and CRB designation- a very small club. I've also done Real Estate sales training throughout the country for many years. I am also a member of the 1926 Circle of Excellence Platinum Level at Long Realty and in the top 1% of all Realtors in Long Realty and nationwide. In order to reach this level, an agent must earn net commissions $500,000 or more in a calendar year- which we did!!

With all of this experience, I am more than just a Realtor®, but rather a consultant for all of your real estate needs. I’m great with the numbers and analysis, but also really enjoy helping people find their “place in the sun”. I just am able to bring a lot to this from all of my past experience, and look forward to helping more people make successful real estate decisions in the future.

On the fun side, I am an avid golfer and a member of the Stone Canyon Golf Club in Oro Valley. Just let me know when you want to play a round of golf at one of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in Arizona!!

Client Reviews

Al and Sandy were flawless in handling our recent retirement move to Arizona. In less than 20 days we were able to select, negotiate, inspect, fund and close on our new home. Al made it happen. Working closely with us, Al communicated via email and phone. Including having us remote sign those  documents that did not require wet signatures. We highly recommend Al and Sandy for your real estate needs. 

Larry R

Al recently sold my home in Tucson and was very professional throughout the process. His 40 years of experience clearly showed throughout the transaction as well as his calm demeanor contributing to a successful closing. I would not hesitate to recommend Al as your Realtor, he will get the job done!

Dan E

Al and Sandy made our home buying experience an enjoyable one. Their years of experience show in their work. They explained the home buying process, without making us feel belittled. Both takes pride in their work and works diligently to find the perfect home. They were always available and worked  with our complex schedules. I couldn't be more pleased with how easy Al and Sandy made my first home buying experience. I would highly recommend them to any of our friends or family! Thank you Al and Sandy!Nate H. and Nardos F. of Tucson, Arizona.

Nate a

The very best Real Estate team in all of Tucson and surrounding communities. Al and Sandy were absolutely outstanding in their committment to selling our house in the quickest time possible. Their continuous motivation and informative nature kept us aware of how well our house was doing at all  times within the Tucson market. Their expertise within the real estate venue is invaluable to anyone who wants a "top-notch" team on their side when selling their home becomes paramount. How can you not go with an all around "winner". 

Chris W

We live in Minnesota and needed to sell our mother's house in Tucson. During one trip, Al gladly came to house to meet with us and fully explain the process and offered suggestions for minor improvements to the property. Upon returning to MN, Al provided regular communications with the "Friday  Report", as well as other E-mails and phone calls. Once an offer was made, Al provided skillful negotiation to maximize the price and minimize the expense of needed repairs. Throughout the entire process, Al and his team provided constant communication, which made this a stress-free experience. Al knows how to sell real estate

K. B

Al LaPeter is a real estate expert. He got us into our dream home and negotiated a fair price. He was quick with responses and even helped us find the lender with the best rates around! He made the home buying process easy and comfortable for us, as we had just moved to AZ from out of state. I  highly recommend Al. Thanks so much! 

Jen M

I would like to thank Al for putting my home on the market. He made the transition wonderful. He always made time for us. If we had a question or wanted to look at a home he was always there. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy a home or sell their home. It's been a pleasure  working with Al, he has included our kids in this adventure and it's been a great experience for all of us. Thank you Michele Garcia 

Michelle G

Al is very good at what he does. He's very knowledgeable in every aspect of the realty business. Al goes above and beyond what is expected of a realtor. We can call Al anytime day or night and he will make time for us. Al had an open house not to long ago and after leaving that open house we called  him to see if we could see a home. I'm sure after a long weekend he just wanted to go home and put his feet up, but he set it up and met us at the home we wanted to see anyway.We would recommend him highly to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home.Whenever we asked Al questions he had the answer, whether it was what we wanted to hear or not! Honesty in this business is essential to the customer! We haven't purchased a home in over 12 years, many things have changed. But Al knows everything there is to know about the newer ways to get people to see our home using all the new technology. 

Jim G

AL has been outstanding! From our initial meeting through our home search and purchase he has been our support and advocate. I cannot express how grateful my wife and I feel to have chosen Al LaPeter as our Realtor. He is a true professional!

Matt M

Al is absolutely the most professional, dedicated and knowledgeable person I have ever dealt with. I would recommend him to you without reservation. You will be making a wise business decision by working with him.

John D

Al made the hard job of relocating seem easy. He was able to help us locate a great home, worked with us on pricing, arranged all the inspections and guided us through the closing process while we were 900 miles away. I think everyone should have Al as a team member when purchasing a home.

Kwai R

We have been working with Al on finding our new home in the Oro Valley or greater Tucson, AZ area. As we live in Milwaukee Wisconsin, it is difficult to understand the housing market in a totally different area than where we live. Where do we go to get the answers to our questions - only one  person, Al LaPeter. His knowledge of the area is extensive. However, in the unlikely case that he may not have the answer to your question, he knows where to get the needed information and does get back to you right away with the answer that you need. His contacts are vast and he will go the extra mile(s) to help you with your search. Because we are still looking, we can not comment as to his negotiation skills, but we believe that they will be impressive too, once we get to that stage of our new home hunt.

Kim M

My husband and I had our home on the market for three months. There were few showings and practically no interest. After selecting Al LaPeter as our new listing agent, he and his associate (Sandy) walked us through the house and made several suggestions in regard to how best to prepare our home to  sell. After we made the majority of the suggested changes, Al held an open house during the first weekend of the listing, and sold the house. Total time from signing with Al to the sale was four days!!Al is full of energy, enthusiasm, and optimism. He is immensely knowledgeable, and working with him is and was a joy. Al is an excellent negotiator and secured for us what we consider to be a very equitable price for our home. I recommend Al without reservation.

Kim M

As a transplant to the area I needed someone who could guide me through the details of a new community. Al had ideas and suggestions that I would have never considered. I appreciate Al's efforts at getting me the perfect home.

Jane C

We became acquainted with Al and Sandy after stopping at an open house hosted by Kindra Walker, one of their associates. We were visiting at the time, but planning on a near term move. Kindra provided a detailed summary of Al and Sandy's experience (and her own) and why she felt fortunate to be  working on their team. We liked the summary, liked Kindra, and reached out to her again to ask for their help in choosing a Tucson home. We were Hawaii-based at the onset (now recently settled in Tucson) and having their expertise was extremely helpful to us. As we were still in escrow on our Hawaii home and addressing our out of state move, we felt fortunate to have everything handled so seamlessly. We didn't have a single concern about how things were proceeding in our absence. When we needed help (e.g. getting recommendations on competitive pricing for home insurance), they referred us immediately to trusted professionals in their network. We closed escrow effortlessly - and happily for us - early, and felt so comfortable with the team that we asked them to help us with an investment purchase. We highly recommend their services.

Sadly, the circumstances revolving my meeting Al and Sandy were my dad's passing in late January 2015. To complicate this sad event, my dad chose to marry his long time companion just weeks before his death. Acquiring a step mom at my tender age of 64 was awkward. However, I was glad that my dad  was happy. Upon settling his estate his new wife and my sister and I agreed to list and sell the house. The first real estate agent was attentive but could not deal with the rules placed upon access and showings of the house. Long story short, he quit and I then searched for another realtor. Enter, Al LaPeter and Sandy Kantor. They showed the patience of Job when dealing with my step mother. They price the home, sold and closed it. Success!! Many thanks to the LaPeter Kantor team!!

It was pure luck that I met Mr. LaPeter looking at a house in Honeybee. I mentioned to him that I had a lot that I had been trying to sell for about 5 years and in 12 hours, he looked at it (in the snow), took pictures and had a price in mind and we listed it. Less than a month later he had a  buyer and the sale was seamless. I have bought and sold several properties and the only problem I see is that Mr. LaPeter does not also have an office in California and Washington so I can use him there. He and his staff are great - and I am one that does not write reviews! 

Al P

Al and Sandy are fantastic. Sandy did a fabulous job at staging and marketing our home. Al was very responsive and offered great advise during the entire sale process. They are the best in town- we highly recommend them to anyone selling their home.

Suela M

Al is a true professional. He is responsive to all inquiries, works diligently and gets the job done. He recently sold our house in Tucson, AZ. We highly recommend him and would definitely engage his services in the future.

Judy R

I needed to sell my mother's house and I contacted Al LaPeter at Long Realty because the majority of the houses selling in the neighborhood were from his agency. I wasn't disappointed one bit! Al was a complete professional in helping us get the house ready to go on the market. He kept us informed  weekly of any activity going on with the house which was very helpful for me living out of state. He kept us on track with what we needed to do to sell the house quickly and I'm ever so grateful for that. He is a master of his profession and I wouldn't acetate to call on him in the future when I 'am ready to retire to Arizona. 

Kelly B

Al is a very knowledgeable and professional real estate agent. He knows the local market and acts with the utmost integrity to assure that his client will receive the best buy for his money. He follows the daily listings and remains informed as to any changes that may occur. He has many years of  experience in the field and uses his knowledge in expert negotiating and overseeing the processes needed to procure a fair and competent sale.

Ric R

Our experience with Al and Sandy was , in a word, outstanding. From our initial contact on the internet to our first meeting to the purchase of our new home, they were prompt and thoroughly professional. Their extensive real estate experience helped us tighten up our search so we saw only  properties within our desired geographical location and price range, but with a sufficient number of properties to help us make our decision; thus, no wasted time. Al and Sandy are very personable and they made our house search productive and pleasurable. They understand and and respect the seriousness of buying a new home and were excellent shepherds in guiding us to the perfect new home for us. We would highly recommend using Al and Sandy to buy or sell real estate in the Tucson market.

Claudia M

Our home had been on the market for a year when Al took it over. He was amazing and it only took a month after that. He certainly has our gratitude and respect. We would call on him again.

Marietta F

We had a great experience with both Sandy and Al ,,They sold our house and found us another one within one month...Good Job we interviewed many realtors and they stood out as someone who could do the job and they did... Margaret Leonard

Margaret L

Al and Sandy took my house after it had been on the market for 6months and in 6 weeks I had a buyer. The photos were professional, the counsel was helpful and the virtual tour helped.

Don. D

Unlike other realtors, he e-mailed us exactly the type of houses we were looking for. His entire team including his recomended mortgage team were excellent professionals. He got back to us and answered all questions in a few minutes. The buying and closing process went smoothly. Even after purchase  his team has been very helpful and assisted us in getting acquainted with the local environment. In my 50 years of buying and selling homes, he is the best realtor I have had the pleasure of dealing with.

Joel U

Al did a great job communicating on a weekly basis. He provided statistics from the websites where the home was posted, as well as a weekly personal email to our family.

Carolyn B

Al represented us through a challenging turn of events that required extensive repairs to our home after it was listed. We were out of state and Al communicated with contractors and our insurance company to expedite the work and get our home back on the market. He sold it one week after the  repairs were completed!

Ben S

My first experience in selling a house! I was very lucky to have met Al and Sandy and have them be our realtor. I was very anxious and nervous and contacted them too many times to count. He always lifted my spirits and kept me informed with every step. To sell our house in record time made our  future plans come true. Can't thank them enough and I highly recommend this team. They are very knowledgeable and have been doing this for a long time. Experience matters. Thank you again Al and Sandy for allowing us to move on and enjoy our new life with family.

Mary M

I certainly appreciate Al LaPeter & Sandy Kantor team, and especially Erica, for the tremendous effort they took to sell my house. They were professional, confident and very helpful with wonderful ideas on how to make a good looking impression on the house presentation. I am very please with their  work. I highly recommend them for their well done job! 

Norma j

Not only did Al and Sandy help sell my house, they also assisted in getting my new and beautiful home. Both are excellent and I would use team Al and Sandy again anytime, besides telling everyone how professional they both are.

Krista G

Al LaPeter was very helpful in our home search, sent us new listings every day, took us through several and answered all our questions during the buying process.

Ellie W

Al and his entire team are highly skilled and professional. We are extremely pleased with their collective knowledge, process capabilities, support staff and responsiveness throughout the entire listing, negotiation and closing cycles. Over the many years we have bought/sold homes, we feel this was  one of the most efficient, effective and communicative experience we have ever seen. Take the time to meet Al ... it will be a valuable investment of your time.

Jim L

Al LaPeter & Sandy Kantor were very helpful in selling our home. We had tried two other realtors prior to hiring Al and Sandy but had no luck during that year of selling our property. They made some suggestions to enhance the look of our home, and within a few months we had a buyer. Al and Sandy  are very knowledgeable in handling real estate and will provide all their resources to help you find exactly the home you want or the buyer you want for your home. 

Jane R

From the moment we met them, they put any concerns to rest. They have a very easy going nature in dealing with each aspect of the process, but don't let that fool you as they are aggressive in getting things done and are extremely experienced in their field. Our home was sold in 3 weeks and even  though we had a very tight timeline for closing, everything went according to plan. I would and have recommended them to friends and family. This experience with Al and Sandy was great. They are professional and outgoing and always kept our priorities first. I always felt as though they were working for us and it showed in all our interactions. Thanks Al and Sandy! 

Bob C

Al and Sandy sold my house in just over 30 days. Both Al and Sandy are excellent people to work with. I was very please with Kathy, their office person. I highly recommend using Al and Sandy if you are selling or buying a home. It was a fast and easy process.

Jean W

Al and Sandy were able to sell our home in spite of the depressed market for high value homes. They were very knowledgeable of the area and what was needed to finalize the sale. I would recommend them, especially if you have a difficult situation (short sale).

Mary K

Al was the consummate professional. He found many homes in our price range to view and evaluate. He was never pushy or opinionated-- he gave us time to decide and when asked, he would give us his opinion of the home, setting, neighborhood, etc.etc.. As we are new to the desert his advice on how a  home was situated for sunrise and sunset was invaluable. We enjoyed his easy going manner and local knowledge of the markets as well as "whom to call" for whatever issue. Al and Sandy are a "solid" honest, hardworking team that I want on my side whether I am buying or selling a home. Give them a call.

Tom P

To say it simply, the Al and Sandy team is the best! We had our house on the market with another realtor for eight months and finally decided to make a change. After interviewing prospective realtors, we chose Al and Sandy for their excellent presentation. We definitely made the right choice.   Al and Sandy held an open house EVERY Saturday and Sunday during the listing. They kept us constantly informed regarding any showings, open house activity, views on line from different web sites etc. Since we had already moved, they gave us great advice on tweaking our house presentation. Because of their expertise, our house sold in six weeks. Although at our age we may not move again, if we do, our realtors will be the Al and Sandy team. 

Claudia B

When we interviewed Al La Peter prior to listing with he and Sandy, he promised to keep us informed weekly as well as following up with showing agents. He did exactly that. We had a steady flow of showings, ultimately leading to the sale of our home.

Marvin a

Al and his assistant Erica were great to work with. if i had any questions, they had the answers or would call me right back with the information I needed. Al and Erica sold 2 homes for me quickly and at a good price.

Johnny O

We had the privilege of working with Al La Peter and Sandy Kantor for two months after a disappointing experience with another realtor. I was immediately impressed with their professionalism, their artistic ability to present our home in terms that would catch the right buyer's eye. They were  business like in their dealings with us but took time to encourage us that our home would sell to the right buyer. The marketing materials they developed for our home were beautiful and within a short time, we had a buyer. Walking us through the selling/negotiation process was masterfully done. Both us as sellers and the buyer were satisfied that we had a well thought out proposal for carrying the purchase forward. Hooray for our agents. 

Barbara M

It was a pleasure to work with Al and Sandy. They were very knowledgeable, compassionate and understanding. Al and Sandy brought a terrific combination of experience and marketing to our unique house and helped us sell to a family who was a perfect fit for the home. They listened to our concerns  and made the experience as pain free as possible, while helping us along the way.

Heath E

Al spent time with us to understand our desires. He let us look around but we always came to him for advice and council. So we asked him for a home with specific boundries He came back with several and he led us thru the process of making offers. He kept us from over paying and he led us to a  house that is perfect. We closed in a timely manner with no real issues. Al work hard to be responsive to our requests. He led us thru the process and we have our home. He is a gentleman to work with and a pleasure. 

Gene T

After unsuccessfully trying to sell my house in 2015, I was sent a letter from Al and Sandy. In it, they detailed their success in 2015, selling everywhere in the greater Tucson area. They sold a wide variety of houses, from $200+K to well over $1M. They also provided over 30 houses they had  sold in the previous 18 months that they re-listed after the previous listing did not result in a sale. When we interviewed Al, he immediately asked if I knew why my house did not sell before. I gave a couple of reasons and he took those and expanded to specifics, such as a better photo shoot and a more enticing description of the property. Al also explained his vast experience, which helped convince me to list with Al and Sandy. Once the house was listed, Al and his team immediately jumped on an aggressive marketing plan including many open houses and a strong internet presence. Upon receiving an offer, Al and Sandy used their experience to skillfully negotiate a satisfactory deal that included a few necessary repairs as a result of the buyer’s inspection. In total, it was a pleasure to work with this team and the result was completely acceptable.

Jan A

Recently I was in need of a broker to sell my parent’s home. After careful consideration of several Brokers I decided to go with Al and Sandy for several reasons but the primary reason was their tenacity to earn my business was superb. They worked hard to earn my business and I knew that would  translate to them working hard to sell the home. Their marketing package was fabulous, their advice was solid, they aggressively marketed the home through several media outlets and held numerous open houses. You could not go wrong with them. I would strongly recommend them.

Matt C

Al was very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. He always had our best interest in mind. We had a very untraditional buy and he stayed on top of the on going negotiations. I would recommend him to anyone.

Stacey B

I feel fortunate to have Al LaPeter, assist me in my home purchase. I had recently moved from Florida to Tucson. I didn't know any realtors; until I came across a property, that I was interested in. Al's name was on the home posting and when I called him, he took the time to come out to meet me.  Even though he indicated, that I could work with other realtors. I was so impressed with Al; I knew, I meet the right person, and didn't need to look anywhere else. Through many showings and offers, he hung in there to guide me. He always answered every email or phone call in quick response. I feel blessed to have worked with an honest sincere realtor. I would recommend Al to any of my friends looking to purchase in the area.

Ed K

Simply put, Al and Sandy are a wonderful team to work with! Their professionalism, experience, and familiarity with the area made all the difference in the world. From beginning to end, we felt that they were always looking out for our best interests!

Janice G

Al and Sandy are beyond awesome. They handled all aspects of our home purchase. To add some complexity we live on the east coast and purchased a Tucson home. Al arranged all contractors, inspections and even our walk-through! Saying Thank You seems so inadequate, but THANK YOU Al and Sandy. We  could not have done this without your gentle guidance. To the reader of this review... Stop looking, go with Team Al & Sandy! 

Steve P

They sold our home at expected price. Communicated well with us through out. They took care of lots of things during our absence. The brochures they provided for potential buyers were excellent. I give them 5 stars

Ishwar J

Al LaPeter was very professional and proactive through the entire sales process. From the very beginning he gave us guidance on what legal paperwork we would need in addition to the POA we had because the house was in a Trust. He gave good input on the price we should set in order to sell it and  was patient with us when we decided to not change the price for a few months. He kept us updated every week on how many people had viewed the house in person and on line. He also kept us informed on how the local market was doing on a weekly basis. When we got an offer and the subsequent results of the inspection he gave advice on what we should fix and not fix. He went out of the way to drive to the house to personally review 1 of the issues brought up in the inspection and told us it was not an issue we should address. He had his roofer give us a 2nd quote on needed roof repairs so we had a benchmark to compare the buyers roofers bid against. He as very professional, attentive and went out of his way to help us all along the way. High recommend him.

Leroy F

Al and Sandy did a fantastic job in showcasing our home in a difficult market. The presentation material was superb. They kept in constant contact with us during the whole process with phone calls and emails. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. We cannot speak  highly enough of them. Thanks Al & Sandy! Joe & Carol

Joe a

We have a beautiful home, in a gated guarded community, in a high end, mountainous community outside of Tucson, Arizona. We put it on the market because we had purchased another home in the Phoenix area. We never thought for a moment we would have a problem selling our home, but still carefully  researched what we thought were the top realtors in our area, and selected one. He did the expected things, took photos, did flyers, put some ads in high end magazines, had a couple of open houses, and had the realtors from his agency through. We had some lookers, but certainly no rush of interest.....and not even one offer. He wanted us to renew and told us "it's not about which realtor you hav". Well we felt different, anddid not renew the listing but rather went with a friend who had a broker's license. Shortly after that listing began we had a beautiful packet of information arrive from Al and Sandy, I phoned them and said we had already listed with another person. But for some reason I kept their material, perhaps because it was so professional and impressive and something told me we would be needing them. After another six months of no success, no offer and many problems with the listing, we finally hollered for help from Al and Sandy. We continually dropped the price to ridiculous levels during the wasted year with two unsuccessful realtor. By now we were convinced we owned the biggest lemon in this high end development and we were really getting worried. Al arrived on a hot summer day, calmed us down and pulled up a chair to make his presentation.... by then we were convinced that all realtors were cons and lazy....he convinced us that he and Sandy were different. In fact he showed us that they actually produced results and went through the impressive number of sales they had that year, how they were ranked in the top of the top of 1700 realtors, how they took homes that appeared to be un-sellable and sold them! We honestly thought no one could help us, but after listing the house, communicating extensively with us, always doing what he said they would do, we had a signed contract in five days. We were dumbfounded, how had they done it? Hard work, communication, top quality photos, brochures that million dollar homes would command, and talking, talking, talking and making things happen. We just today closed, and the title transferred! We never, never would have sold this house without their professional guidance and hard work. We now have a new friend for life! Nancy Plencner

Nancy P

We worked with Al on this sale. He made great suggestions on how we could increase the number of potential buyers. We took that advise to heart and had a qualified buyer within a couple of weeks. If you are looking for property it is well worth giving them a call. Thanks Al

Ken A

Changed realtors after six months of no action. Al & Sandy worked hard to get showings. Even though it took another six months, their work was obvious to me and when it counted, they were there for me. I will spend my first night in my new home tomorrow and can finally say, it all worked out for  the best!

Dr. G

Al did a fantastic job of selling my home in Sunflower within 2 weeks of putting it on the market. From coordinating cleaning and maintenance of the house (I now live out of state), to producing very professional photos and an interesting online listing, to providing me with thoughtful and  insightful guidance during the negotiation of the sale, I couldn't be happier with the experience. I would choose Team Al and Sandy again in a heartbeat! 

Al and Sandy are true professionals. Their experience, empathy, and "can do" work ethic expedited every step of our home purchase. We were coming from out of state to purchase our AZ home and they went above and beyond to not waste our travel time. Al lined up all of the inspections to coordinate  with our calendar and Sandy was instrumental in aligning us with VIP Mortgage, which in the end was also an outstanding choice. All emails, phone calls, and texts were attended to immediately and there were never unanswered questions. They were sensitive to our particular needs throughout the purchase and even beyond with local recommendations. Al and Sandy were gracious, kind, and understanding throughout the process. This is their true calling and it's why they are so successful.

David m

The marketing of the house resulted in many views of the house. Communication was exceptional. My father was very pleased with the entire process and highly recommends Al.

Kai G

It was a pleasure to work with Al and Sandy throughout the process of selling our home. We live in a different city and had to rely on them to do everything from preparing the home for showings, referring and coordinating with various vendors, recommending a pricing strategy and developing a  marketing plan. They handled each step of the process efficiently and effectively, communicated frequently to keep us informed about what was happening, and were thoughtful about keeping our out of pocket costs down. Part of their communication with us included a Friday report that summarized the current status at that time. Al and Sandy were professional, courteous, and upbeat throughout and had a sense of urgency about keeping things moving. We received an offer a few days after the house was listed and days before our first open house was scheduled. Thanks to Al and Sandy we closed on the house a few weeks later at a price with which we were very satisfied. We would strongly recommend Al and Sandy to anyone selling their home in Tucson.

B. A

We were looking to purchase a home in the Tucson area, and through an online search, we found Al LaPeter & Sandy Kantor with Long Realty. They were delightful to work with, very attentive to our needs, and extremely responsive to us. As luck would have it, we found a home on our first day out  looking, and we decided to make an offer. Through their expert guidance and negotiating skills, we were able to successfully obtain the house at an excellent and fair price. They helped us through all the paperwork, and we closed and just got our keys! We would highly recommend Al & Sandy to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Greater Tucson Area.

My home had been on the market for close to 8 months with very little activity. Once it was taken off the market, Al and Sandy called and then sent a very professional booklet explaining their services. We met and it was obvious that this team was extremely competent. They assessed my home,  suggested practical and important ways to improve the salability of the home along with staging. Throughout the process they were always available, even nights and weekends to answer questions and offer other suggestions. Activity immediately increased and within 3 weeks it was sold! What a difference! Al and Sandy are a first class team!!

Al LaPeter and Sandy Kantor were delightful to work with. They were extremely professional and always responded immediately. I was very impressed with their marketing techniques. They continually reviewed the status of my listing and made changes/suggestions to encourage more showings. I highly recommend this creative team of real estate professionals.

Al is the most professional agent you could have. He was in constant contact with me during the buying process. I was on a definite time line and he made it happen. When it comes to trust then Al is the agent you should use. I have used his references to do work for me in my house and they have  been perfect. Al definitely loves his work and it shows in everything he does. I will recommend him to anyone who is either selling or buying an house and feel confident he will do the same great job for them as he did for me.

Al was a very knowledgeable realtor. He answered our questions and emails promptly. He made the process of purchasing a home effortless. We were in good hands.

We were in the loan qualifying stage when we were driving around searching for possibilities we had been blown off by other realtors because we did not have a qualifying letter in hand. We stumbled across this house that we liked so we called the listing agent Al La Peter with his busy schedule he  was able to show the house the next day. When we arrived at the house we were greeted at the door and handed a folder with the house information, comparables and other houses we wanted to look at plus all his credentials. AL was not only the listing agent we asked him to act on our behalf. On purchasing the house he walked us through home inspections and appraisals kept us on top of any info needed. Every week through the buying process he sent us a update via email. If we had questions we received answers. His expertise had us looking at houses in Apr 8, 2017 and closing June 15, 2017 giving us time to finish a rental lease and allowing the seller to purchase a new location for a smooth transition on both ends. Al is a go getter so if the timing had been better on our end we would have closed within the 30 day time frame. Thanks again to Team Al La Peter and Sandy Kantor from Long Realty, Oro Valley.

Outstanding realtor couple!! Very aggressive in finding a buyer for your home. Can highly recommend them!! They did 3 open houses at the beginning of our listing, where/when there is the most Interest in your property. Professional and honest, rare quality in a realtor or in life in general. Try  them

Al and his team listed our Tucson property and we found them to be smart, attentive, thorough, practical and hard-working! They responded quickly each time we called or emailed. They worked diligently through some tricky issues and keep the momentum going. We wholeheartedly recommend them!

We were looking for an honest, professional and sincere person to manage the sale of our house, while understanding our needs. These are points Al and Sandy went above and beyond. Not to mention the STUNNING marketing material portraying the true beauty of our home for sale. They sold our house  with ease, and delivered a peaceful closing. We also purchased a lovely new home with everything we wanted in it from Al and Sandy, only due to the fact that they understood what we were about and delivered, once again, an excellent transition of homes. I can't say thank you enough to this outstanding team and HIGHLY recommend you trust them with your real estate needs

Resa W

I was a buyer from out of state with limited opportunities to personally come out and visit potential homes. Al and Sandy went above and beyond my expectations when it came to working with my travel schedule and keeping me up to date. They made what could have been a difficult process very easy. I  cannot recommend them enough

Gordon C

Thank you Al and Sandy for selling our Oro Valley home in just 2 weeks and quickly finding our current home. We highly recommend Al and Sandy to anyone seeking real estate services. The personal attention we received from them was unequaled. Their availability and consistent communication sets them  far above every real estate agent with whom we have worked. Hire Al and Sandy. You will be thankful that you did.

I had a small lot to sell and had tried several times before with other realtors over the last 5 years with no success. I didn't have a lot of hope this time, but Al came highly recommended so I decided to try again. I was AMAZED at the service I received from Al. He kept in contact, offered  encouragement, gave excellent advice and counsel, plotted the traffic the listing had received weekly and explained the variations. Most importantly, he sold my property in two months! I was especially impressed that my little piece of land received the same tender loving care that a million dollar house would have. We have recommended Al to our daughter and will continue to recommend him to others.

Al LaPeter and Sandy Kantor were great to work with! They were always available by phone to answer questions and to give us much needed information. Al is a great negotiator and saved us a lot of money on both our sale and our purchase. Sandy carefully compiled a list of improvements we had made on the home we sold and made sure it was printed on the back of all the flyers. She also held our house open for us several times. Al and Sandy hired an incredible photographer, who took fabulous photos of the home we were selling. Their office team was great too! Whether we needed new flyers or a new lockbox, they were on top of it. We can't say enough about how hard these people work, how much experience they have and the professionalism they exhibit. Not only did they sell our home for a good price but they got us the only one we wanted, also at a great price. Thank you so much, Al and Sandy! Sincerely, John and Cathy McGowan

Best Realtor in Arizona!!!! Erica Chittenden is amazing! We live in Michigan and in October/early November we came out to Az to visit family/friends and do some house hunting. We had searched several locations but realy loved Oro Valley area. Erica met us at the house and was so pleasant, professional, and personable. We had to return home to Michigan and so all our counter offers, signings,inspections,appraisal, and "speed bumps " we encountered during the buying process (due to the lenders inadequacy) Erica was on top of everything, extremely knowledgeable and was always available for us when we needed her. We can't wait to move out there this spring and personally thank her for everything !!! We will highly recommend Long Realty/Erica Chittenden!!!! Sincerely, James Richards and Yvonne Follis

Team Al and Sandy were exceptional. Not only did they get our home sold within 2 weeks of listing, but they introduced us to our new home within a week. Closed on both homes within a week of each other as well. The house we sold was on the market 5 months previously with another agent at Long Realty. Al and Sandy were able to market our home with a different approach, using the latest drone technology for outdoor views. They also hired an outstanding photographer who captured our home's interior with some stunning shots. Sandy provided an eloquent description of our home's qualities and amenities to bring the potential buyers to our home quickly. We had offers within days. Al is exceptional at driving and closing the deals, keeping us up-to-date on events and required information and documents. We are so happy that we choose them to step in when we were struggling to get the property sold. Team Al and Sandy are true to their word. They will get the job done and you will be happy.

Thank you Al & Sandy for hard work to do the best for your clients

Firuzeh M

Al and Sandy did a great job helping us sell our home. Al gives you his attention, and answers all your questions. Sandy helps you present your home, so it is shown in the best light. Their presentation of your home, and the work they do to present it, are what makes them different from other realtors. We would recommend them both to friends.

All excellent from beginning to end!

Al and Sandy took over my expired listing in January, and we closed escrow on April 5. This was not an easy house to sell partly due to it's unusual floor plan and bedroom arrangement, but Al and Sandy's excellent marketing and complete sales strategy, from top notch photography to "mini-staging" and well planned open houses made the difference. We had strong interest in the house with lots of showings and 2 offers. After the 1st buyer backed out, Al remained positive and we had the next offer within 2 weeks. Even though the final negotiated price was a little bit lower than I had hoped, having it sold sooner rather than later was the important thing to me. Al also saved me a few bucks by getting a quick close date, which was nice. Overall, my experience with Al and Sandy was most excellent, what wonderful people to work with! I'll use them for my next real estate transaction and I will refer my friends.

Al is incredibly knowledgable, open, quickly responsive to any questions or concerns, and completely respects what can be a difficult process of buying or selling a home. He remains upbeat, is forward thinking, using technology and media at hand, to maximize exposure and feedback. I'm not sure he has time to sleep...

Al and Sandy did an outstanding job with a sale that had its difficulties. It was a pleasure to work with them. They added many details that made our home stand out from the others.

Walt W

Al and his team are fantastic. He negotiated hard for us, handled all of boring paperwork and inspections, made the entire process easy, fun, and successful. I am the kind of person who expects top performance from a professional, and Al exceeded the mark in all categories. I give Al my strongest personal recommendation. Kenneth L. Hale, D.D.S.

Al LaPeter and Sandy Cantor Were wonderful to work with. Their suggestions helped to market and sell this home in less than two months. I am very pleased with their professionalism and efforts throughout the process.

David O

Al and Sandy did a terrific job. We have bought and sold a number of homes over the years, and their handling of the transaction was as good as it gets. They were extremely helpful from the time of the listing, through the sale and escrow, and follows all along the way. Highly recommended them.

When Al LaPeter claimed to have sold thousands of homes at over a billion dollars in his advertising, I was hopeful I could work with an agent who really knew what he was doing. He contacted me initially when I was trying to sell my former home that was on the market for eight months and he told me I had the wrong agent. He was correct but the house did eventually sell. I called him later to initiate a real estate relationship in purchasing a rental home. He immediately exuded enthusiasm and sent me some home possibilities that were listed on his Long website in a matter of hours. Within a short amount of time I found an ideal house and location and although I was out of town he had no hesitation in showing my children the house of my choice. I am now the owner of that home and the real estate transition was almost flawless. He is truly a professional agent with a keen sense of humor and extremely efficient. I was hoping he would have tried to negotiate the price downward but the seller wouldn't budge. I am now in the process of putting finishing touches on the home and preparing it for a rental thanks to Al.
